ABOUT The NHFFRW PLANNING COUNCIL

  • The New Haven/Fairfield TGA (Transitional Grant Area) Ryan White Part A Planning Council is a federally mandated community group of dedicated volunteers appointed by the Mayor of the City of New Haven/Fairfield, CT to plan the organization and delivery of Ryan White Part A HIV/AIDS services.
  • Part A funds are used to meet the health service needs of people living with HIV/AIDS that are not met by any other health care programs.
  • The Planning Council takes the lead in conducting many of its legislated responsibilities and shares duties with the grantee in some areas. To guarantee that a broad range of ideas are heard, the planning council membership must reflect specific areas of expertise as well as disproportionately affected and historically under served populations.
  • The Planning Council completes its work through a structure of committees and subcommittees all of which are open to the public.
  • Individuals wishing to become a member of the Planning Council must submit a nomination application, which is reviewed by the Council Membership/Finance Committee. Once approved, the application is presented to the Council for an approval vote. Once approved by the full Council, the application is sent to the Mayor for approval and appointment.

 

The council gathers information through needs assessment activities for use in making decisions to provide federal funding for medical care and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS.

 

The Council makes decisions that impact how federal HIV funds will be used for New Haven and Fairfield County services such as:

  • case management
  • medical care
  • insurance assistance
  • transportation
  • outreach
  • housing
  • emergency financial assistance

 

The Planning Council completes its work through a structure of committees and subcommittees all of which are open to the public.
